What is Debian noroot?
This app will install Debian Buster with Xfce desktop environment. You do not need to root your device. You will need 1.2 Gb free on internal storage. A mouse or stylus is highly recommended.
This app is NOT full Debian OS - it is a compatibility layer, based on PRoot, which allows you to run user-land Debian applications. Your phone is not rooted during installation. Running Wireshark or Aircrack-ng will fail, because they require root. This is not an official Debian.org release.
To install packages (web browser for example), open Terminal and run commands:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install chromium
You can check full list of packages in Synaptic package manager.
Packages that work: synaptic gimp inkscape clementine chromium vlc mplayer audacity lmms
In VLC and Audacity, select PulseAudio as audio output.
To run Chromium, use command:
chromium --disable-dev-shm-usage --no-sandbox
Packages that fail to run: firefox-esr libreoffice konqueror kodi kdenlive blender, and anything that uses OpenGL.
